I have never made an online purchase before and have recently been tempted to start, but have no idea about the do's and do not do's of using a credit card to make a purchase on a website. I very rarely use my credit card to buy much of anything. It usually sits in my wallet like a glistening silver slice of euphoric greed and capitalist excess.
I'd just like some recommendations on how to make safe transactions online. Some stories about your favorite and crappiest online purchases may be appropriate as well.
Thank you in advance, muthafucka.
